DEVELOPMENT REPORT ON 24-INCH RECTANGULAR OVERSIDE DRAIN

OVERSIDE DRAINS ARE USED FOR MOST ROADWAY DRAINAGE TO COLLECT WATER OFF THE ROADWAY AND FUNNEL IT THROUGH THE ROAD BERM INTO A FLUME DOWN THE HILL SLOPE TO A NATURAL DRAINAGE CHANNEL. EXISTING STRUCTURES HAVE BEEN USED IN THE PAST BUT DISCARDED FOR REASONS OF EITHER ECONOMICS OR INEFFICIENCY. THE PAPER DEALS WITH A SATISFACTORY OVERSIDE DRAIN CONSTRUCTED, USING AVAILABLE MATERIAL AND A DESIGN WHICH CONFORMS TO CURRENT MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUES. USING 16-PAGE CORRUGATED STEEL CULVERT STOCK SHEETS 37-1/2 BY 76 INCHES WITH 2-2/3 BY 1/2 INCH CORRUGATIONS AS A BASIC SIZE, AN INLET STRUCTURE WAS DESIGNED. THE SHEETS WERE FORMED ON A 28-INCH RADIUS TO FORM THE INLET SIDES AND WINGS FOR BERM PROTECTION. THE BOTTOM OF THE INLET WAS PLACED ON A 1-1/2:1 SLOPE TO DISCOURAGE LODGING OF DEBRIS AND PONDING ACTION ON THE ROADWAY. A STARTER SECTION WAS USED WITH BUILT-UP SIDES USING THE CORRUGATED GALVANIZED 16 GAGE STOCK MATERIAL IN STANDARD STOCK SIZES FOR ECONOMY. THE FLUME USED STOCK CULVERT SHEETS 48-1/2 INCHES WIDE GIVING A 24 INCH WIDE FLUME WITH 12 INCH SIDES. THE SECTIONS WERE 117 INCHES LONG. MATERIAL WASTE AND LABOR WERE HELD TO A MINIMUM FOR ECONOMY. /AUTHOR/
